What Is Sir Carter’s Full Name?

After weeks of waking up in the middle of the night and worrying that Beyoncé and JAY-Z had welcomed their twins without letting us know, their arrival was finally confirmed in early June. The couple then waited a whole month before they revealed the first photo of their little ones, Rumi and Sir, and it was completely worth the wait. While the photo of Beyoncé cradling her newborns in a earthy and natural scene similar to that of her pregnancy reveal almost made us pass out, it was her caption that really sparked emotion in her fans. “Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today. 🙏🏽❤️👨🏽👩🏽👧🏽👶🏾👶🏾,” she wrote. While the twins’ names were already rumored to be Rumi and Sir (they also filed paperwork to trademark them), the order the singer put them in has raised some eyebrows. JAY-Z’s real name is Shawn Carter, but Beyoncé didn’t call them Rumi and Sir Carter. Does she mean that Sir Carter is one name and should always be referred to as Sir Carter? And Rumi will stand on its own like Madonna? Or, if she meant nothing by it, is Sir’s name really Sir Carter Carter?
